NYT: Newspaper’s Top Editor Is Now a ‘Homeless’ Blogger


He was laid off on April 24. A week later he was living in a Motel 6.

Rich Jackson, a 54-year-old journalist who worked as the top editor of The Herald-Times, a Gannett-owned newspaper in Bloomington, Ind., received the bad news in the parking lot next to the paper’s headquarters. He was also told he would have to vacate the apartment in the same building, where he had been living for 10 months.

Unable to go to the newsroom, Mr. Jackson started a blog. He called it The Homeless Editor.
